Abstract

Summary

Electron microscopy of purified particles of a virus found in from Vanuatu (formerly New Hebrides) indicated that it is a geminivirus. Preparations of virus particles contained one coat protein of mol. wt. about 27500 and circular and linear single-stranded DNA about 2350 nucleotides in length. In thin sections of infected cells, geminate particles were found in crystalline arrays both in nuclei and in the cytoplasm. The virus is serologically related to maize streak virus but differs from it with a serological differentiation index of 3.
